With a contemporary, light colour scheme of greens and neutrals, organising private dining at Shababeek in Sharjah will ensure you're hosting guests at one of the city’s most stylish options for parties. The huge, arched windows flood the space with light during the day while at night they frame the glittering lights of the city outside in perfect little snapshots. In fact, the restaurant’s name means ‘window’ in Arabic, so it’s only fitting its interiors are as much focused around these beautiful features as the soft furnishings.
Heading up the kitchen at this trendy Lebanese restaurant is celebrity chef Maroun Chedid whose clever combining of flavours from Lebanon and the Mediterranean result in a please-all menu of fresh plates. In traditional style, kick off your group dining experience here with hot and cold mezze dishes. This dining arrangement is ideal for encouraging sharing between friends and family or acts as a great ice breaker should you be organising a meal for colleagues or clients.
Cold options include a variety of hummus dips, moutabel, labneh, and smoky aubergine baba ghanouj. These are perfect for scooping up with fresh, warm breads to enjoy alongside salads likes tabouleh and frikeh. On the hot side of things there are all kinds of crisp, filled pastries and parcels as well as crunchy potato harra covered in a rich chilli emulsion.
Mains bring grills and kebabs as well as platters that allow you to sample a selection of the kitchen’s must-try dishes. Less obvious plates include a braised lamb shank pie encased in puff pastry and grilled jumbo shrimp with a roasted chilli sauce.
Desserts like warm maamoul cheese and chocolate and date cake complete the line-up, which is complimented by a varied drinks list.
For group dining, the team at Shababeek will work with you ahead of time to come up with the perfect menu, allowing you to relax on the day and look after your guests without having to worry about your order.
